On the town and on the phone
Each week, we pick four thematically linked Missed Connections from the weekend to compete in a battle of opinion. First prize is a date with the missed connection. Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you’re fired. (We have no power to actually award any of these prizes. Leave your ranking in the comments.)
Unrequited love can strike anywhere, from a death metal show at a deafening rock club to a Verizon store in a suburban strip mall. And thus we find our themes for this week’s two-for-one Missed Connections roundup.
Lamb of God concert - m4w - 20 (Eagles Ball Room)
We stood next to each other a bunch during the concert. You had blonde hair and you were wearing a tool t-shirt and chuck Taylor’s. You also had an iPhone. You were with someone whom I assume is your boyfriend. He had short hair, a piercing and a tattoo. We made eye contact several times and I thought you were absolutely beautiful. I was the guy with the bad looking hair, facial hair and clothes. I’d really like to get to know you, you seemed like a nice person and I don’t really have any metal head friends in this part of the state. Please send me a picture so I know it’s you.
Really cute worker at AT & T - m4w - 27 (76th and Layton)
You helped me with getting my new phone. You have dark hair, cute, and had a great smile. If you read this, let me know the first letter of your first name.
Woman from Dylan concert - m4w
Hey - You were at the Dylan concert, alone, blond-ish hair not-quite to your shoulders, glasses, jeans, scarf, light colored top, sitting 4 or 5 seats away for Knopfler and then one away for Dylan - Sec 215, Row G approximately seat 10 or 11. We were talking during the end of the show and you left when he started playing “Blowin’ in the Wind.” I was going to follow you out and talk to you some more but didn’t and now regret it. WRITE BACK! We should talk to some more over coffee, tea or lunch.
curious at captel - m4w
